Adventures with Audio Copy (and paste)


Well, I’ve had a brief play with FourTrack and DopplerPad, and I can safely say that it works like a treat. So far I’ve only used it in DopplerPad really, but once you’ve selected what you want to copy and paste into FourTrack the process is very simple indeed.

Let’s say I have a drum loop that I want to move from DopplerPad into FourTrack. I get it running on DopplerPad then uses the audio copy feature. That’ll ask me if I want to launch FourTrack, which I do. In FourTrack I can select how many times I want the loop to run, and where I want it to go in the selected track, i.e. at the start or at the end point for the last loop if there is one there.

Very simple and straightforward indeed. In fact, I had to break off from having fun with it to write this! So, now I’m going back to it again.

Of course, this is all going to get even more interesting with DopplerPad’s additional synth features and FX tools. I haven’t tried out the FX in FourTrack, I think I’ll be doing that later on!

Mixtikl 2: First Track – Prism

http://bandcamp.com/EmbeddedPlayer.swf/track=1036470201/size=venti/bgcol=FFFFFF/linkcol=4285BB/
I’ve been playing with Mixtikl V2 for a few days now and I love the use of generative audio in the app. Here’s a simple track I made on my iPhone 3G to give you a taste of what can be done.

I’m going to be doing some more stuff with Mixtikl V2 soon and hopefully post more audio and maybe a video if I can squeeze it in.

The next thing from Amidio

Thanks to “Doc” for this info. The next thing we can expect from Amidio is currently called “DMD”. That’s all I have, and I can tell you no more as I don’t know anything else, but it’ll be fun to speculate. Let’s just hope it doesn’t get stuck in the app store for 8 weeks again!

In the meantime there’s lots of other Amidio goodness like Touch DJ and of course the next version of Noise IO Pro which is still in review.

Happy days!

DGOS on Kernel simplicity

I like to follow the DGOS blog simply because I find it interesting to see how a mobile OS develops. I’m not sure I follow it all, or in fact much, but I’m in it for the journey!

FourTrack 3.0 new features


Sonoma have a big list of features for the new version of FourTrack (3.0) but I’ve just taken the stuff that is really new and left the rest out. Even so, it is worth having.

  • (NEW) AudioPaste: paste audio from compatible AudioCopy apps including InstantDrummer v1.1, DopplerPad v1.6, and VOX 3000 v2.0
  • (NEW)PromoTracks: download individual PromoTracks from a variety of artists directly into a FourTrack song to add more tracks, mixdown with effects, export and more
  • (NEW)MasterFX: sweeten the sound of your recordings with a compressor-limiter and a 4-band parametric EQ

Personally I’d like a few more effects, but this is good for now.

Chordica Touch coming soon

I got this press release from the maker of Chordica. Sounds like an interesting idea. Here’s the the release:

A NEW (MUSICAL) HOPE – COMING SOON
It’s with great excitement that I make this announcement… I have created a new musical instrument that EVEN the blind can use!

Right now, out of all the hundreds and thousands of musical instrument applications that you can launch on your iPhone and iPod Touch, none of them are truly friendly or even made with the visually handicapped in mind. We all know that Apple have always taken great strides in making all their technology accessible, but it is still up to the third-party developers to design well for the impaired.

I am going to introduce a new musical instrument that will not discriminate even the blind.

Unlike other apps which can work with Apple’s VoiceOver technology, musical instrument apps cannot afford to have VoiceOver intercept every touch. Musical instruments require instant triggering of sounds and samples and functions, and with many such apps, the screen(s) are complex and difficult to use with a small margin of error even for those with sight. Just imagine the challenges that musical instrument app designers face when trying to address all these issues including the special needs of the blind.

In this respect, I have given it a lot of thought and I honestly believe I have created something special and unique for the App Store’s ever-crowding space.

What’s the point in changing the world if it’s not for the better? Come this Christmas season, my dream and soon-to-be reality is to bring new hope and cheer to an often overlooked community, especially when it has come to musical instrument apps. My Christmas wish this year is that the visually handicapped won’t just be hearing joyous singing and music, they will be making some of that themselves with their own hands and voices.

The new instrument is called Chordica Touch and I hope to have it submitted to Apple for approval on Nov 19, 2009.
